Located 40 miles south of Tallahassee off Hwy 98 on Mashes Sands Rd., our Cottage is one of the original Cottages on this road, built in the 1940's, recently remodeled and painted. The Cottage is on ground level (no stairs or steps to climb) approximately 1430 sq. ft., concrete block and vinyl flooring.
The Cottage is on an 80' X 270' lot which goes directly down to the shore of the
Ochlocknee River (about 70ft. from back screened porch). Aged, gnarled oaks and terpentined pines shade the yard.
Our Cottage has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, large living room, kitchen/dining area, and a 11X22 screened porch which seats 5-6 people comfortably.
The porch is great for morning coffee or eating meals, with table and 2 benches, reading, watching river traffic, and bird watching. The river runs east and west here and the sunrises and sunsets are breath taking.
This is the perfect mini vacation get-away for couples or families, avid fishermen and hunters, girls get-away, guys weekend off, or FSU Football games in Tallahassee!
New, right in front of "The Stewart Cottage" paved walking/cycling path, begins at the end of Mashes Sands Rd. and continues across Hwy 98 and on to Sopchoppy.
There are several excellent restaurants which serve locally fresh seafood or you can purchase and cook your own local, fresh seafood from the seafood houses in the Panacea area.
You can relax quietly in the Cottage or if you prefer more activity you are only 1.3 miles from Angelo's Restaurant, Tropical Trader, Big Daddy's Pizza, 1 mile from the public boat landing and public pier, and 1.25 miles from Mashes Sands Beach.
*If you have your own boat, you can put in at the public landing, go off shore salt
water fishing or up the Ochlocknee for fresh water fishing and then pull your boat up on the sandy river shore back of the Cottage (you will need to keep check on the tides). Don't have your own boat? There are charters available for off shore fishing or fresh water fishing up the Ochlocknee River.
*There is also seasonal cast netting for shrimp and mullet; scalloping, and floundering.
*For the hunter, you are only 30 to 45 minutes away from Tate's Hell or Samatra to the south and you are practically in the middle of the Apalachicola National Forest and the St. Marks Wild Life Refuge.
For the golfer there is St. James Bay Golf Course about 30 minutes south on Hwy 98.
Other sites and activities include Wakulla Springs (about 30 minutes away), Gulf Coast Specimen Lab in Panacea (kids love this) or take scenic Hwy 98 over Walker Bridge over the Ochlocknee River (which the Cottage is on) to Alligator Point, and on to St. Teresea, St. James Bay, Lanark Village, Carrabelle, East Point, St. George Island and Apalachicola. Along this scenic route are several places to dine and lots to see. Apalachicola is great for antiquing/junking/eating and sight seeing.
*Of course all Florida boating, fishing, netting and hunting regulations must be followed.
